My first bike was a Honda Trail 90. I was almost 12 years old and I was very proud of it. This is not mine but is just like it. They were awesome for riding in the hills here in Southern Ohio.

First one I ever bought was a 1973 Honda CB450.
Was not allowed to have one until I grew up and moved out of the house
Rode all my friends bikes up until then

My first bike

1953 Sears Vespa motorscooter. It only had a front spring with no shock absorber. If it was a Vespa Vespa it would have had the front shock.

My first motor-cycle was a Schwinn that my Dad and I bolted a 2.5 HP Briggs & Stratton motor on when I was 14 years old. My first "real" motorcycle was a Honda CB360T I purchased new in 1974.

Mine was the Honda Super 90 but I had the Eureka Vacuum Cleaner Chrome Wand Exhaust Modification! Very few of these were produced. In fact I've never seen another one! At least I could hear it running!

Red 1976 Kawasaki KH400 2-stroke. I burned the baffles out of the mufflers on a high speed ride from central Ky to Indianapolis and back. It had a beautiful ringa-ding-ding-ding sound that was noticeably higher pitched after that trip!

1965 Triumph 650. In my hometown here in so cal there were about 6 or 8 of us that had them, a lot of great memories. Bought it in 1967 and my mom didn't like it at all.

First was a minibike back in 1966. My Mother told me I could get one if and when I could pay for it myself. Saved up the $, and bought it from the local hardware store. They called her that day because I was to young to buy it myself. She was shocked when they told her that I had the money. The week after, she grounded me because of my grades, and she took the bike away. Finally got it though.
